BSA Images Of The Week: 01.22.23

Welcome to BSA Images of the Week! Happy Lunar New Year 2023! Year of the Rabbit.

新年快乐!

Collabos, crew tributes, nationalist heroes, laborious illustrators, truck pieces, raised reliefs, refined extinguisher tags, absurdist collages, and a range of evolving letter styles, New York is a juggernaut of graffiti and street art every week. It’s an embarrassment of riches from a wide variety of creative talents on our streets, and we’re thankful to catch just a part of it and share it here with you.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring: City Kitty, Chris RWK, Smells, Rambo, BK Foxx, Gane, Trace, Ollin, Rold, BK Ackler, HOPS, GULA SOR, Clepto, Hof Crew, 2 Mycg Gane, Zas, BAG HAS, Faile, JG Toonation, Drones, Nails, and Sanije.

Unidentified artist…what’s with the mushrooms…we’ve noticed an uptick in mushrooms imaginary on the streets both in ads and in art. The National Mushroom Association must have contacted all the street artists to do a campaign or something. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Welcome to BSA Images of the Week!

Hope you had a moment or two to be thankful this Thursday with family, friends, or your cat. New York days are ever shorter, and people are officially entered into the Holiday Vortex. Mariah Carey tirelessly lipsynched her jingle at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the tree (and some of the crowd) is going to be lit at Rockefeller Center Wednesday, a community center in Queens is getting ready for its Channuka Experience, HOSTOS in the Bronx has its annual Kwaanza Celebration Thursday, The Burrito Bar in Staten Island is getting ready for its Drag Brunch Bingo: Christmas ExDRAGvaganza, and Marlene at your corner beauty shop is running a deal on holiday marble nail manicures – which are the dope nails to have right now. “If you’re a fly gal, then get your nails done. Get a pedicure, get your hair did.”

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring: Winston Tseng, Mike Makatron, Maker, MFK, Ollin, Slue, KEZ5, Big Ash, D30, 2Much, and Sekt.

Welcome to BSA Images of the Week! It’s Fall Y’all !

If you know us, it’s a Mexico-Brooklyn fusion. Just one of the endless combinations you discover when you truly explore New York, where we speak 700 languages and dialects.

It is no surprise that graffiti, its style and aesthetic, spanned many of the world’s cities and cultures over five decades – as does street art today. You’ll see similarities this week between pieces we just caught in Chihuahua, in the north of Mexico, and NYC, in the North of the USA. The styles recognize history, but there is definitely a youthful vibe out there and here.

Shout out to the Brooklyn (now LIC) street art duo Faile for opening Deluxx Fluxx in the underground of Manhattan’s Webster Hall this week. Thursday night’s opening was full of fans, admirers, friends, and collectors – with Patrick Miller walking the line outside on the sidewalk to greet patient guests who were waiting to get in. Wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling Faile, the new club is eye-popping with fluorescent image making and graphic design in the Faile vocabulary – and yes, there are new video games that are digital eye candy with a sense of irony and humor. Miller told us that the new version of their classic kiosks would hopefully also provide a platform to other artists – an open inclusive attitude that only comes from street artists who actually believe in community. With a stage for performances, a DJ HQ, smoke, and lasers – it is going to be an instant New York classic house to escape into.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring: Donut, Muck, Maze, Diez, Imok, Ollin, Griz, Tee, Derk, Bonk, Retos, Merck, and TCK.
